Though no one can know what goes on in anothers head, we can know what they do and say. Reagan turned in fellow actors as commies in the red scare. This is pretty mean. As the head of the Union he should have protected them. But...no. As Govenour of CA he raised tuition and made previously free schools expensive because "students don't agree with my policies." He made his bones with the far right by making a tape condemning Medicare as the yellow brick road to communism and socialism. First it is pretty dumb to assume that either economic system is inherently evil. Second so what if it is? So that was a pretty mean thing to do for only money. He sold Chesterfields to people with lung cancer, not exactly Mother Teresa. He called all of Russia the Evil Empire to raise tensions. Nothing evil about socialism sorry. Russia is no moreor less evil today than it was back in the day. Reagan fostered the Iran Contra fiasco, the October surprise and totally missed the point of Russia's Afganistan battle with the jihadists which has led to the 8 Obama wars of today. That is black and white thinking which is malicious.
